Freeciv normally saves games to the current directory where
you started the server.  If you don't have write permission
on that directory, you will get the above result.  Try eg
  save /home/username/
where /home/username is where-ever your home directory is.
Or even better, start civserver from a writable directory
(so then autosave should work too).
